A cosy property with river views conveniently positioned in Polruan only a few minutes’ walk from the quay and benefitting from easy access of the South West Coastal Path.

This comfortable hideaway, perfect for a couple's break, is in Polruan village on the Fowey River in South Cornwall. It's only 500 metres from the waterfront, and ideally located for a seaside village life, local beach days, spectacular South West Coast Path walking, and day trips to nearby attractions. Fowey across the river by ferry has speciality shops and restaurants, and there are regular cultural events so check the calendar.

Comfortably furnished, it's got everything you need for quality time together, peace and quiet. Inside, the ambience is cheerful and bright, with a calm colour palette and some interesting retro furniture pieces. Enjoy the tranquillity of the shared garden with river views, crack open the wine and unwind into holiday mode. It's cosy and warm for cooler months, with a wood burner effect electric fire to warm up after a long walk, and there's even a bath for some pampering time.

Along Polruan's waterfront, you'll find shops and cafes, a pleasant pub with harbour views, a sandy village beach and the ferry landing. Great walks start from your door, around the harbour for wooded hills reflected in the tidal inlets or along the coast path – quaint Polperro is under 7 miles' walk and should take 3 hours, with return by bus possible on some days. A fine circular walk from Fowey to Polkerris beach, where water activities are available, is just over 6 miles long. By car, a trip to Charlestown Harbour 18 miles away evokes the romantic 18th century Age of Sail.

  • Many of the amenities, ferries and cottages in Polruan are accessed via steps some of which can be steep. Please contact us if you have specific requirements.
  • There are many small winding streets that are not suitable for cars, therefore many properties in Polruan do not have private parking. However, there is a large pay and display carpark at the top of the village.

This property suited our requirements an was a good base for walking locally. Ideal for a short stay as garden access is not easy and the level of comfort is not brilliant simply because the property is small. However we had a lovely time but if coming to the area again I would look for a slightly more trad country cottage property with a wood burnRead moreing stove etc. Hide

Beautiful location for walkers but not much else to do. To get out you definitely need a car

Reviewed by Susan 31st August 2019

The cottage was good value for money, but a little tired. Polruan is a very quiet village, the steep hill is a challenge, so no good for anyone with any disabilities, unless equipped with an electric scooter. All facilities, 2 pubs and 2 shops are at the foot of it, including the ferry to Fowey, which you need if you want anything else. Would recomRead moremend to people for walking or just wanting total escapism. Hide

Reviewed by Elizabeth 23rd June 2019

We really liked the property and it was much more spacious than the pictures suggest. We liked the lounge upstairs with the view and cooler bedroom downstairs. Some of the furniture is a little dated and could be modernised. The town is lovely and quiet but only 1 pub was serving meals which limited the options. Great base to explore from, especialRead morely the coast path. Hide

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
